. chuck schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio and bob menendez will discuss the plan. we'll bring it to you live. our first read team notes this is the first time senator mccain signed on to a priority of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let's bring i
an incentive to get it done as well as democrats. the working group of eight senators includes democrats durbin, schumer, menendez, bennett and republicans mccain, graham, rubio and flake. florida doesn't border on another country but you get my drift. it's an impressive list of names but griagreeing on some details won't be easy. don't call it a gang, by the way. the senators released a four page what i would call a memo of understanding that lays out the principles they say must be part of any deal and these are the principles they all eight agree to. a pathway to citizenship is contingent on first securing the border. by immediately adding new surveillance technology, think drones, more border patrol agents. the proposal would also require a new tracking system to reduce visa overstays. a commission made up of governors in the border states, law enforcement officials and community leaders would assess when enforcement measures had been completed and then the path to citizenship for those undocumented workers. still vague exactly how this commission will decide whether border security benchma
durbin from illinois and michael bennett from colorado, on. on the republican side led by john mccain, including they include lindsey graham because john mccain can't do anything without lindsey graham alongside of him. they also include marco rubio from florida and geoff flake, the other senate from arizonaother senate from arizona. democrats insisted any immigration reform bill had to include a path to citizenship. had to do something about these 11 million people estimated, i think it's higher than that, who had been here, came here illegally, have lived here a long time had their families have jobs, have houses have kids in school. some have kids in the military belong to local churches members of the community, had to do something being them and allow -- give them a path to staying here permanently as american citizenship. democrats always insisted on that. and the president has insisted as have democrats, that this all has to be contained in one bill. it can't be little piece meal things. republicans, for their side, still have this broken record
have elapsed. mr. durbin: i will not object but i ask consent to amend the consent that i follow the senator from louisiana in speaking. the presiding officer: without objection, both are so ordered. mr. vitter: thank you, mr. president. and through the chair, i want to thank mr. durbin for his courtesy in light of another engagement i have. mr. president, i also rise to join my colleague from alabama, to join many others, to express real concern on this topic of illegal immigration and the ne need, the desperate need, to fix this problem, to solve this problem. mr. president, i believe we all want to cherish and hold up and continue the proud tradition of this country which is founded on immigration. mr. president, one of the many things that makes america unique is that we are a nation of all of us immigrants. none of us somehow have some blood oath or blood tie to this land that goes back from time immemorial. we all came here relatively recently, in the grand scheme of things, from other lands, all of our families. we are a nation of immigrants and immigration, and we chair r
from new jersey or senator durbin. and for democrats the challenge is, are they willing to give up a very useful political bludgeon with which to hit republicans in order to get a deal done? because once both parties -- if both parties embrace this, it's a political tool that in some cases, in many cases, is off the table for democrats. >> sure. it shows a compromise. that does help the future of the republican party. but while we talk about that, let's talk about the future of the democratic party. as americans we might have already seen it last night on "60 minutes." take a look. >> i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve. no, no. >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and this is taking place. >> you know, steve, i got to tell you, the -- you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> all right. so we're incorrigible. but they agreed to sit down to this inte
durbin of illinois, robert menendez of new jersey. and on the other side, we have serious conservatives like jeff lake and marco rubio. left/right coalition on immigration, mark. how does that work? >> i think it speaks to the ideological diversity of our country and, actually, the evolution of the senate now. and, you know, you see senate republicans that used to treat compromise like a dirty word and now they're coming out and putting forward a proposal with their democratic colleagues that to a large degree mirrors the key principles that the president has identified. i do agree this is a golden opportunity for senators like marco rubio and with the other guests that mentioned that, but i do disagree that the president hasn't shown leadership here. he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform as a key priority of the first, you know, as the beginning of the second term. so i think that what the senate democrats and republicans have done is gotten out in front and trying to make -- take ownership of this issue. they see it's going to happen. the president has give it an
durbin of illinois and bob menendez of new colorado's l bennet. republicans are john mccain, south carolina's lindsey graham, marco rubio of florida and jeff flake of arizona. this comes as president obama flies to las vegas to outline his vision for immigration. senator durbin says immigration reform, a comprehensive plan is long overdue. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law we can live with. we've virtually going for 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that is unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> reporter: the plan also calls for easier entry for immigrants who have math, science and engineering skills. bill? bill: there is a lot of politics laced to this entire issue. how do the politics figure into this proposal, steve? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fa
like durbin and schumer, liberal democrats going along with something with john mccain and lindsey graham, that's a pretty good sign that this will pass easily in the senate. i think one of the most intriguing stories is the fight for credit. i think there are going to be a lot of people headed by marco rubio who will want to get a lot of this credit. lori: on the political side but it also begs the question, right, greg, what happens to the millions of illegal immigrants already living and working in this country? will it put pressure on available jobs and other services like hospital care, et cetera, what do you think?. >> i don't think so. i would prefer to take a positive spin on this entire story. i think if you look at a country like japan which is a demographic train wreck with a huge deficit, much bigger than ours, we're adding lots of people who will pay social security taxes. who will pay other taxes. you're adding to our population i think a workforce that will actually help our fiscal issues far more than a country say like japan. lori: good comparison. help our fiscal
at the 35 statues representing men and women, well, one woman. thank you illinois and senator durbin for the statue of frances willard, though i feel obligated to say she was born in rochester, new york. thankfully, she will soon have a company when rosa parks completes her journey from the back of the bus to the front of statuary hall later this year. [applause] now we look around and remember the men and women who helped to define our nation. they like us worked hard to move this country forward. here in this hall, four presidents took the oath of office. here abraham lincoln served his single term in congress, and john quincy adams, the only former president to return to serve in the house spoke out against slavery. today we also remember in event that took place outside the building but reverberated within. this year marks the 50th anniversary of the reverend r. luther king junior's march on washington, which spurred passage of the historic civil rights laws. we are honored to have with us a colleague, congressman john lewis, a speaker at that historic march.

, these senators, these include some of the biggest players on the democratic side. senator schumer, senator durbin, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sad
. senator dick durbin had ideas on the plan that might become a plan that might become a concept. >> we're committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country get an immigration law we can live with. >> john: we don't know if this will lead to real reform or not. it gives republicans and democrats something new to fight about on the airwaves for the next week. >> it is an opening to a conversation. it is interesting to me that we can't discount the fact the only reason why republicans are coming to the table is because they lost the hispanic vote in the last election. >> john: you're right. you can't become president without 670% of the -- without 60% of the latino vote. who was the president who gave amnesty to all undocumented worker in the country? >> oh yeah, ronald reagan. >> that would be reagan. >> what was i smoking? >> john: look at barack obama. here's the guy who sent national guard troops to the border and had the most deportations of any president but he also supported the dream act. that's how latino americans knew this guy was on our side even though he was e
